God’s Creation is Very Good

When God created heaven, earth, the oceans, sky, mountains, lakes, fish, animals, birds, and human beings male and female, He said it was not just good but ‘very good’.

God doesn’t prove He existed
because He was before creation. “In the beginning God created”… No the ‘big inning’ is not about baseball, but a demonstration of His love and care for us and His creation here on earth and the galaxies.

God gives good things to us and for us for His good pleasure. He delights in blessing us just like any loving parent would want the best for their children.

“It is God to will and to do for His good pleasure” Phil. 2:13

You may be or have been going through difficult times and have a hard time believing God has your back and wants what is best for you.
Well, He does and not just in the good times, but the worst times as well.

As this Spring season begins to pop and blossom with all of its creative beauty; look around and look up and be grateful for new beginnings because our Creator wants us to enjoy His creation. This week is a time to reflect on the victories and promises God has for your life. When Jesus was nailed to the cross and suffered a brutal death, but remember. God promised that if the temple was destroyed it would be raised in three days. Jesus would be raised to life on the third day! “Jesus said, I am the resurrection and the life” John 11:25 Death has been defeated forever and because Christ lives we can live also in eternity to those who believe.

The resurrection and the Spring are signs of new life, new changes, and new beginnings.

  1. Be thankful for everything. Things in life happen for a reason and a purpose. Focus on God’s goodness.
  2. Be proactive. Enjoy the outdoors. Get off your phone and turn off the electronics. (I include myself as well). Talk to each other and listen to one another in person.
  3. Call somebody. See some friends or relatives and do something fun. Go fishing, hiking, a long walk by the beach or countryside. Get on a bike, have a picnic, draw or paint a landscape,or go for a drive.
  4. Do something different but let it be outdoors, because you just might like it. More important do it to make someone else’s day or weekend. So what if it cost a few bucks to enjoy life and God’s creation.
  5. Enjoying the outdoors and God’s creation will get your mind off the cares and worries of this life. Your mind and strength will be renewed. It doesn’t always have to be a spiritual thing to find rest and renewal.
  6. Give somebody a big sincere hug because they need it. Embrace each other with touch and feelings goes a long way. You don’t even have to talk because body language speaks volumes.
  7. Rejoice and Laugh a lot. Laugh out loud. Cry if you need to, because you need to release it all. There are times that these tears are tears of joy and not grief. Even in your grief ponder on the good memories.

Make the effort to get outdoors even if you feel depressed and are lonely.

I renewed my fishing license this week. I plan on enjoying the little things in life and catching a lot of fish!

Greetings! My name is Andy Provitola and I live in New England on the south shore between Boston and the beautiful Cape Cod region. The purpose of my blogging and writing is to encourage you in your journey here on planet earth. Life is full of pressing issues and problems and my desire is to discover a place for peace, hope, healing, and contentment. I am a follower of Jesus Christ – God’s one and only Son of God and discovered these truths along my own personal journey. Having discovered a personal relationship with God the Father through Jesus Christ does not mean I have to be religious to attain the rewards of heaven. The fact is God provides grace for us and accepts us as we are in His image. In other words, we cannot attain heaven or life eternal on our own, but by God’s loving grace and no merit of our own. My goal is to continue to find a balance of life from a spiritual and practical perspective with a purpose to please and glorify God in all that I do because of His ‘Gift of Grace’. God is not transcendent and so far away that he is out of reach with humanity. God desires that His presence lives within us and not just in the galaxies and the universe. Experiencing the unconditional love of God has been so rewarding and while discovering the truth and purpose for my life. Moving forward in this life is not a sprint, but a marathon when it comes to this race here on earth. I am blogging because I find it is a good way to connect in a much more effective and efficient way when it comes to communicating and interacting with with people that I do not know. Blogging and writing challenges me and also stretches me specifically in my thoughts, my mind, my emotions, and my spiritual life to live a vertical relation with God and a horizontal relationship with others. There will be a variety of topics and subjects to address including youth, young adults, family, singles, seniors, relationships, etc. Some of the topics will include God’s creation and power, depression, loneliness, suicide, hope, healing, setbacks, financial matters, business, stress, anxiety, care, encouragement, and so much more I would like to connect with all walks of life, ethnicity, culturally, other religions, socio-economics, and more I am currently writing a book and several memoirs about my own life and journey . The journey begins at a young age growing up in Malden, Massachusetts, specifically Maplewood Square to where I am today. I became paralyzed from the waist down as a senior in high school and I share how my life changed for the better! “But I do not consider my life as something of value or dear to me, so that I may [with joy] finish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus. To testify faithfully of the good news of God’s [precious undeserved] grace [which makes us free of guilt of sin and grants us eternal life]. Acts 20:24 Amplified Version
